Week 19: Good Things Inside
"This is a good prompt to think outside the box!"

Today was Doors Open day in my town, an opportunity to explore the heritage, arts, architecture and culture it has to offer. There were 20 different sites featured this year celebrating the past, present and future.

I went on two separate walking tours of the historic homes in the town core. There was a very interesting discussion on the various periods and styles. Little bits of local history that I did not know were brought to my attention and it has prompted me to learn more.

Next, I drove out to another historic farmhouse that was built in 1875 on the outskirts of town.

Here are some of the good things that I found inside this building...

There was an exhibit of works created by students of a local high school arts program. There is some fabulous young talent out there!

  1. What a fun way to spend the day! I wouldn't have guessed the art was from high school students. They are truly talented!

  2. Wow, what a treat! I love to see local kids' artwork - every year they have an exhibition in the town hall! Great photos :)

  3. I love to tour old houses. You got an extra added bonus by being able to view an art exhibit. How fun.

  4. Sounds like you had a fun day.. I love going through old houses!

  5. Sounds like a great day of exploration. Lots of good inside!

  6. Looks like you had a great day. I'm sure you saw lots of good things inside these old houses.

  7. Fantastic interpretation of this week's theme. Thanks for taking us along on part of the tour. The one painting with the lush green images reminds me a bit of Frida Kahlo's art -- except for the computer/TV screen!
